America’s kids need us. Because of the coronavirus, millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on.
No Kid Hungry has a plan to feed them, but we need your help.
Before this crisis, millions of hungry kids relied on school for food. For many, it was the only food they might get on a given day.
But even as schools and communities work to feed students while many school buildings remain closed, children are missing the meals they need. And with many parents out of work, more children in the United States are facing hunger than ever before.
From the halls of Congress to your local school, we’re working to ensure kids get three healthy meals a day.
Free Meals Finder
We worked with states and the USDA to develop a map to help families easily find free meals for their kids. Just enter your zip code, and we’ll show you the school meals sites, food banks and more serving food near you.
Emergency Grants & Guidance
So far, we’ve sent more than $70 million in emergency relief to 1,822 schools and community groups across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and Guam. These funds, and our hands-on guidance, are helping them serve millions of meals a day during this crisis.
Hear stories of these programs and the families they’re serving, from Central Florida and rural Mississippi to the Pine Ridge Reservation and beyond, or see a map of all our emergency grants to date.
Advocacy & Awareness
We’re on Capitol Hill advocating for increased SNAP benefits and Pandemic EBT to support struggling families, as well as waivers for schools to more easily serve hungry children, and we’re working with state and local government toward legislation to feed kids during this crisis.
Through our partnerships with the Emmy® Awards, Discovery Network, Univision, Nickelodeon, iHeartMedia, The Homebound Project and more, we’re raising awareness and funds to connect children with the food they need.
What You Can Do
At No Kid Hungry, we feed kids in times of crisis and not. It’s what we do, but we need your help to reach kids during this pandemic and in the months ahead.
